About this trip

 Take this once in a lifetime, trip and explore  Cuba's rich musical heritage by meeting and working with some of the country's best musicians.  In addition to taking in incredible live music at the weeklong Havana Jazz Festival,  you will be in for an intense musical experience by collaborating with Cuban musicians with daily private lessons, workshops, masterclasses, ensemble sessions and a final performance.  You can join the trip as a non-musician as there will be other activities to do while music lessons are happening.  Our trip falls in the category of 'Support of the Cuban People' under OFAC/US Treasury guidelines. . We will interact with incredible, dedicated Cuban musicians who love to share their knowledge.. We will be supporting these musicians thru an independently owned music school by bringing much needed musical supplies to the local musicians.  We will also be supporting and interacting with the Cuban people in numerous other ways by visiting art galleries, markets, taking dance lessons and getting historical tours from our local guides.  We will also take a day trip to the lush Viñales Valley and visit a tobacco plantation as well as the national park. The whole week you will be learning about Cuba's fascinating history.
